Why "variable=some gnome-software" doesn't work?

Why “variable=some gnome-software” doesn’t work when gnome-software is open from another terminal/GNOME Shell, but gnome-calculator does?

Because gnome-software is a service: if the application is already running in the background, the binary will signal to the running instance to open the window and then quit. Environment variables are not propagated by design.
